Who's in and who's out of the 2020 Arnold Classic USA

Who’s in and who’s out of the 2020 Arnold Classic USA.

Just a few weeks after the official competitors list was released for the 2020 Arnold Classic USA, names of competitors have already been added and removed.

The news of Roelly Winklaar pulling out of the competition was the main talking point.

Roelly made it knows not long after the list was released that he would not be entering.

The news was revealed by a number of media outlets, but it was confirmed by RXMuscle.com’s Dave Palumbo earlier this week.

When asked, Winklaar confirmed that he wants to spend more time with his family and take some time off to rest.

The Arnold Classic organizing committee did not waste their time and invited another two athletes to the show.




The first addition to the list is Morgan Aste.

This will be the first pro show for the 2019 Amateur Arnold Classic overall winner.

Morgan is one of the bigger bodybuilders and his presence will surely be felt on stage. It will be interesting to see if him standing next to Big Ramy.

The second addition to the list is UK’s Nathan De Asha.

Nathan had a very successful 2019 season until he received a 12-month suspended jail sentence for supply steroids.

Due to all his court appearances, Nathan pulled out of the 2019 Mr. Olympia.

Nathan already qualified for the 2020 Mr. Olympia by winning the Monsterzym Pro Show.


The problem that Nathan might have to face is if he will be allowed entry into the USA due to his court sentence.

If he does make it to the Arnold Classic, he will surely be a threat as he is capable to go up against the best.
